    Spanny,
    Your uncle must have been Sgt (Pilot) Peter TANNER - 934067 killed 3-2-1943 and buried 4-2-1943 in the Benghazi War Cemetery in Libya. He was with 2 ADU (Aircraft Delivery Unit). Engine problems during take off, returned to base but crashed on approach at Mortuba, around 15.50 hrs.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Hello Spanny,

    Your Uncle Peter Tanner had a friend with 94 squadron, RAF and I wonder if you know who this was ?

    94 sqdn provided a guard of honour at his funeral of which I have photos, should these be of interest I can send you scans.

    Regards,

    Ian
